A MAN has appeared in court following the death of Edward Vials on Christmas Eve.
Marc Lindsey, 34, of Hill Park Road in Gosport, appeared at Winchester Crown Court today accused of murder.
He spoke only to confirm his name at the short hearing this morning which was held to set a date for another court appearance.
It comes after 47-year-old Mr Vials, of Tintern Road in Gosport, was pronounced dead in Hill Park Road on Christmas Eve after paramedics fought to resuscitate him.
Lindsey will appear in court again on March 1 for a plea and case management hearing.
